Who Am I? Just a Girl... Answering the question at Dverse today



 
Dipping my toes into the Dverse pool...

Today's prompt: I am who I am but tomorrow, who know?

For today’s Quadrille (a poem of 44 words: no more, no less – not including the title), create a self-portrait.  Perhaps it will be a snapshot of you in some moment of time. Or a taste of your tastes. Or a glimpse into the conglomeration of you — are we perhaps the ultimate nesting doll? Many of us post photos or images with our poems so in this instance, it could be a recent photo; a photo taken in your sepia days; a picture of something you cherish that in essence tells us who you are; an abstract drawing or a flower or animal or color that you ascribe to yourself. Try to make the image complementary to your words.
So, think about it for awhile. Who are you? No one word to include in this prompt….just asking you to create some type of self portrait that you’re comfortable sharing. Let your words be your palette and make broad or fine brush strokes as you wish. You’re the artist here!

Here is a taste of my tastes...



Just a girl who loves to think
Addicted to ink
Night-owl and
Early riser
Troubadour

Merchant of moments
Awed by God
Rhymer of reason and season-song
Tea-drinker, only if there is no coffee
In love with life and the Author of it
Never bored

    1. my heart skipped a beat at this 'we are kindred spirits' because originally that line was written 'in love with life and Anne of Green Gables' but that seemed to not quite express the fullness of my love (though we are kindred spirits), so I changed it!

      thank-you Lillian, a definite kindred spirit!

  11. A great idea to use an acrostic poem. You took advantage of every word of the quadrille to introduce yourself. Must be difficult being a night owl who rises early...

    1. :) I'll admit it has its challenges! and sometimes one end has to give a little to let the other survive!
